The Geological Society – Energy Geoscience Conference 2023: Powering the energy transition through subsurface collaboration

16 May 2023 - 18 May 2023

The Geological Society are holding the first Energy Geoscience Conference, EGC1 on ‘Powering the energy transition through subsurface collaboration’ from Tuesday 16 to Wednesday 18 May 2023, in Aberdeen.

The aim of this new Energy Geoscience Conference series is to explore and develop the contribution of geology and geophysics to the low-carbon energy transition. The meeting will be a key forum for sharing geoscientific aspects of energy supply as earth scientists grapple with the subsurface challenges of remaking the world’s energy system, balancing competing demands in achieving a low carbon future.
